Technical and scientific discussion of amps, cables and other topics.

I don't believe it can be true.

If it were true why would anyone bother with a stepped VC using many high quality metal film, holco or foil R's?

Unless of course one listens only / mostly to similarly compressed popular genre recordings. Which I rarely do.

I used to record (and edit / prepare) live classical / acoustic concerts, for a local community FM station, and will return to that when I am well again. And, I have always preferred simple coincident or near coincident mike techniques.

My CD player is the loudest source, followed by the Nakamichi BX300, the tuner and the turntable.

And, within that - bought recordings, and live concerts from FM, vary in average loudness, by 6db and more.
